This event was co-sponsored by the Coalition for Rocklin Youth, the Coalition for Auburn & Lincoln Youth, the Placer County Youth Commission, Friday Night Live and the California Office of Traffic Safety. A total of 13 youth and adults from Placer County attended this 3 1/2 day training with over 700 other youth working on health, wellness and safety prevention efforts from around California

Spring of 2016, Placer County Youth Commissioners held a Press Conference at Whitney High School in Rocklin. Commissioners shared concerns about their peers from binge drinking and underage drinking and discussed the benefits of Social Host Ordinances along with leaders from local law enforcement and government.

Coalition for Placer Youth members, the Arevalo family of Rocklin, helped spread prevention information to participants of Rocklin’s Hot Chili Cool Cars event September 2017. Over 170 bags and over 1700 materials were shared with event attendees to inform parents and attendees about stress management tips, alcohol, prescription drug and marijuana prevention information. This was all done in the name of fun with stress brains and a kid’s car wash for young ones to cool off in.
